After 33 years of rule, Yemen's president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, handed over power to his deputy. Charles Schmitz, president of the American Institute of Yemeni Studies, says the move won't change much. This week, millions of Congolese voters headed to the polls despite widespread violence and reports of ballot stuffing, bribery and fraud. Worldview gets an update from Kambale Musavuli, student coordinator and spokesperson for Friends of the Congo. Also, Indonesian domestic workers in Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other countries around the world often face horrific working conditions. Anis Hidayah, director of Jakarta-based Migrant Care, tells Worldview what's needed to protect Indonesians who cross borders to support themselves and their families.
